Objecting to extravagance

Objecting to extravagance
by Joel Howard

When Judas saw the perfume poured out
When Peter saw the Lord washing feet
Both began, objecting
"NO" they plead

Judas selfishly, Peter similarly
Jesus saw deeply
Saw Abba's sovereignty
And obeyed diligently

Michal saw David dancing
Jonah saw the LORD Nineveh sparing
Both scoffed, mocked
"HA!" they object

Michal condemned, Jonah fled
Not on my watch! They abandoned love

So Pharisees 
So with you and me
We must choose to not judge
When others give
As God in Christ did
